This essay on opera by Francesco Algarotti is an important, but neglected treatise of eighteenth century musical aesthetics. It belongs to that movement in the arts that rejected the artificiality and formality of Baroque style and moved towards the naturalness of expression characteristic of the painting, literature, drama, fashion, and gardening of the latter part of that century.
